Total running time: 12:59 Entheogen is the music of Goran Pejović, a new producer from Montenegro. 'Singularity' can perhaps be described as IDM - the music certainly has its roots there but there are elements of DnB and something much more delicate and emotive.

|Buben - Out Of Doors [BFW047] - BFW recordings|
The second release on BFW from Vladislav Buben is nothing short of wonderful. The hypnotic drones that appear on 'Emblem' are there, but now coupled with fantastic world beats and deep bass lines.

Bing Satellites second album proper is a collection of improvised live recordings. This is very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound.

Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay...

Beastmaster is a multi-instrumentalist from the UK currently residing in Australia. Using begged and borrowed instruments and effects pedals. 'Goathead' is a brilliant experimental rock EP from an Englishman living in Australia.

We hope to have more from Beastmaster in the future.

Total running time: 30:26 The second release on BFW from i AM esper is an EP of heavy guitar drones.
